I have taken this week off from my library job; and with my printing and binding commission complete, I plan to devote myself to writing (which I have sorely neglected the past couple of months). It's time to be a writer again: read, write poetry, and send it off to lit mags hoping some good fish may bite.
For those who are curious, here are some pictures from the binding process.
My paper-folding work station (laid out on my new 2' x 3' cutting mat).
Punching holes for binding the pages together,
using my tiny awl and book sewing cradle.
Stacks of the almost-finished catalog booklets.
The only thing missing is the thread.
Packed up and ready to go!
